At the end of a marriage, much of your focus will be on sorting out details of finances, housing, and property. The transitional hustle and bustle may keep you busy, and you will have a lot on your mind. One issue that concerns parents before, during and after a divorce is, how will the change affect my children? A recent news article pulled a few responses from a Reddit thread to get a sample of how divorce affects the children, straight from the kids themselves.
Their responses represented a range of feelings, from positive to negative, and acknowledged how feelings can shift and change over time. As you get the major issues like custody, child support and the divorce agreement sorted out, you will be able to later help your children with any feelings that come up. However, the responses of these children of divorce seem to remain balanced, and you can feel that if you are taking care of the big stuff, the little issues will take care of themselves.
